The new U.S.-Afghanistan security agreement adds restrictions on already bureaucratic rules of engagement for American troops by making Afghan dwellings virtual safe havens for the enemy, combat veterans say.
The rules of engagement place the burden on U.S. air and ground troops to confirm with certainty that a Taliban fighter is armed before they can fire — even if they are 100 percent sure the target is the enemy.
In some cases, aerial gunships have been denied permission to fire even though they reported that targets on the move were armed.
We the people of the United States propose that the new security agreement between the U.S. and Afghanistan be revised or disposed of completly to provide safety to our troops overseas.
